News

  • Cigna Updates Genetic Testing Policy
    After extensive and positive discussions between CIGNA and the leadership of ASBrS, we are pleased to let you know that the previous CIGNA policy requiring consultation with an independent genetic counselor prior to the ordering of genetic testing has been changed.  The new policy, which became effective January 15th, exempts breast surgeons who are ordering genetic testing where the results of testing will influence surgical decision making in an individual recently diagnosed with early stage breast cancer. - For more details, click here.
